4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academics are very applicable to subjects outside school and the teachers are very good at maintaining a steady workload.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm a culinary major and I love how my instructors didn't waste time in the classroom immediately put me to work in the kitchen, though without throwing me under the bus, and giving me the hands-on training I need.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: My instructor is very involved in my education. He gives me a lot of hands on experience and explains everything well and thoroughly.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: This is only my third week here at Bates, so far all of the faculty I have met are very friendly, and even remembered my name and who my husband is after only meeting once. The best part was how the advising staff help you enroll in the right classes, right from the beginning, so you don't wast your time with the wrong classes.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Be Prepared to Pay for Books, Tuition, and Fees at Your Own Expense – The curriculum is great. I love the "hands on" training which is much appreciated in this economy. Sometimes i feel that the environment is too relaxed causing students to procrastinate on test and homework assignments. Also many issues with financial aid checks being dispersed in a sufficient time frame, some students have to wait weeks or months to be funded, and are unable to get the books and materials they need. Other than that, pretty decent college.
